    Pros

    The facility is well known and kept clean. The staff is friendly and professional. The environment is nice and calm.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any down side of working at Stanford health care. I don't think anyone would turn down an offer from Stanford.

    Advice to Management

    The dynamics of interdisciplinary team are collaborative and flowing. All members have a say instead of dictated by physicians.

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Residency is a must do to do anything, it's a good place to position yourself for fellowship, and far better than other options - programs in other parts of the country are terrible when it comes to culture and hierarchy.

    Cons

    It's still residency, and it's still medicine. That means a lot of tradition, hierarchy, and slowness to change.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. And quickly.

    Pros

    It's a very collaborative environment. C-I-CARE works wonders for patient satisfaction.

    For a company with so much emphasis on lean practices and continuous process improvement there is quite a lot of waste that have not surfaced yet.
